This has been happening as long as there have been cameras in war. WW 1 and 2 snipers commonly posed with the bodies of the men they've killed. The only difference is that now the whole world gets to see. I'm not defending these actions, just saying that this isn't some new development in war.

lol really?

This kind of thing is done by soldiers due to the stress of war. This isn't because a bunch of psychos joined up, it is because the horrors of war have a monumental impact on the psyches of those fighting in it.

Don't hate these soldiers for this, hate war.

It's not even a combat soldier thing, people everywhere these days have a bad habit of pulling out their cell phones and taking pictures and video of gruesome events for whatever reason.

I'm not defending war. I just think it's juvenile and ignorant to say that this is "typical" of Americans. Write me a paper if you're so sure you know why people do this kind of thing.

Gonna go out on a limb and say that this will cost several American detachments an arm and a leg.

If it bothers you so much as to why they're doing it, why don't you sign up and go overseas to ask them yourself?

"Virtually all of the men depicted in the photos had friends who were killed or wounded by homemade bombs or suicide attacks"

So the soldiers posed with a couple dead suicide bombers? Not saying I condone it, but you might feel different if you were there and had seen your friends die from these bombers.

That doesn't make it defendable. If they have such little control, they should not be in the military. It's not just about being disrespectful. This is exactly the sort of thing that incites more anger, more violence, more suicide bombers... It's totally and utterly stupid, and it puts even more of their friends at danger.

I recommend a documentary called Restrepo to the people in this thread if you haven't seen it yet. It follows a company of soldiers for 15 months from initial deployment to their helicopter ride home. You basically get to see the progression of a group of young men who didn't really know what they were getting into and a little excited to be 'going to war', to their complete emotional upheaval where their only hope of survival is to see their enemies explode into little bits and pieces - they then high five afterwards.
